Yup. Always listen to the horse. They will tell you when it's enough.

My mare Stoeka is 25 years old, and is still jumping 80cm - 90cm. She has a little arthritis, but that doesn't stop her at all. She actually still acts like a 5 year old over jumps....LOL

Like everyone else said, when they tell you. The first school horse I rode and took lessons on was named dusty, haha I've met adults that learned to ride on him. He was going strong for about 25 years. I find the time you stop riding a horse is the time they die, even if you at least just hop on bareback (or put a small kid on them) it keeps them going and going and going... haha I think they need a perpose, rather then to just stand in the feild, any old horse I've known has died almost right after they had stopped being used for anything.

Well my horse is now 24 and we still jump as high as I can. She can jump 1.10m though

She still enjoys it and jumps [almost] anything I point her at and she's in excellent health. I know of a horse who jumped right till the end when she was 29

It gives me alot of hope that I can use indigo or one of my horses for jumping, even if it is just a past time lol !

My horse is 20 and i'm jumping with him like he did it ten years ago...
He's a good teacher with a lot of experience in the big show jumping. He likes jumping and I learn a lot from him and he has already the experience I need!
He jumps over 1,20 cm with me, whether at shows or at home. He's born for the sport and this horse would be unhappy if he wouldn't be allowed to jump!
